• Argue for or against the practice of electronic employee surveillance at work. Provide specific examples to support your argument. What laws, if any, may be violated by such practices?
I am for employee electronic surveillance at work as long as the employee is aware that such monitoring can happen. An employer must protect their interest and employee must be respectful of said employers interest and time. Employees are like investments and in some cases employers must monitor the return on its investment. I do not believe that an employer should be able to monitor without disclosing the fact that they are monitoring. The employer that I work for inform employees upon hire that all internet usage, emails, and everything that is done on the PC can be tracked, that is the disclaimer. It is here that an employee can decide whether or not they would like to be employed by the company with the knowledge that everything that is done on the PC can be traced. Any court would uphold a company that informs an employee; have them to sign understanding that they are being watched.
• Argue for or against employee testing in relation to the job you currently hold. Be sure to take into account both the needs of the employer as well as the privacy concerns of the employees. Provide specific examples to support your response.
They types of test that I had to take were directly related to the job that I had to perform but I do not believe that they do or will portray accurate results.
